THE UNITED STATES AND EUROPE.
WHAT effect the war now being waged in Europe will
have upon the United States is a matter of more than
passing interest, viewed from almost any angle. Of
one thing we may be assured. This country will not become em
broiled in it. A dignified and a strict neutrality will be main
tained. No combination of circumstances can possibly arise I
that would make this nation an active participant in the Eu
The first direct result of the declaration of war in Europe,
so far as the United States is concerned, has been to. paralyze
the stock market. European holders of American stocks are
responsible for this condition. In a panic they wished to re
alize upon their holdings and the wholesale dumping of stocks
demoralized the market to such an extent that the New York
Stock Exchange was compelled to close its doors. This does
not mean that there is a scarcity of money in America. There
is plenty of it, but flooding the country with stocks held in Eu
rope necessarily would affect unfavorably American stocks cf
all kinds no matter by whom they were held.
The demand for our agricultural products by Europe will
no doubt be greater than ever before: and this may also be
true of our manufactures. With most of Europe's industries
paralyzed by what is termed in the dispatches the most terri
ble war since the fall of the Roman Empire, America will be
called upon to meet the needs of the nations involved in it. Con
ditions in the United State* will speedily adjust themselves to
meet those of the European countries, and we will profit large
ly because of the insensate strife that has been precipitated by
the act of a European war lord. The United States could get
along exceedingly well without the kind of prosperity that fol
lows in the wake of war. Prosperity for us in this war means
starvation, desolation and death for the unhappy countries of
Europe now embarked upon a titanic struggle the net result of
which will be the sacrifice of much human life, the waste of treas
ure, and the impoverishment of the combatants.
BITING THE HAND THAT WOULD FEED IT.
IT may be stated as a postulate that Seattle has benefitted, di
rectly and indirectly, by the gold discoveries in Alaska, and
the development that has followed, much more than any
other city; also that Washington State has been a large bene
ficiary. Much Alaska money has been invested, wisely and un
wisely, in Seattle buildings and real estate; much money
wrung from the goldfields of Alaska and the North has been
planted in the soil of the Evergreen State, sometimes with pro
fit to the planter, sometimes to his sorrow and grief. Seattle
through the force of circumstances?adventitious and otherwise
?has been enabled to command a large share of the trade and
gold of Alaska. Alaskans are good customers and usually they
pay their bills promptly and pleasantly. And so when business
has been active in Alaska and the mines yielding generously of
their riches, Seattle has grown and prospered and waxed rich
and great When business has declined in Alaska, through a
decrease in the mineral output or by reason of the crass and
stupid Alaskan policies of the two preceding National adminis
trations. Seattle languished; business suffered perceptibly and
the boom in real estate diminished with promptness, coupled with
disappointment and disaster.
In justice to Seattle and her live citizenship let it be admit
ted that the importance of Alaska as a valuable "asset" of Seat
tle is fully recognized by them. Their withers are wrung when
ever the business of Seattle with Alaska decreases; for what
ever may be the faults, follies and foibles of Seattle and her
people, overlooking a good thing is not one of them. Also let
it be admitted that the people of Seattle have exhibited a keen?
if somewhat selfish?interest in Alaska's prosperity. On many
occasions they have rendered good and efficient service, and
they have rendered it ungrudgingly. For which, at all times,
With the coming of the present National administration
into power t\ me the initiation of adecidedly new Alaska policy.
The do-nothing-bottle-up-the-country-dog-in-the-manger policy of
the two preceding administrations has been abandoned, and in
its place a constructive, developing policy is assured. The im
portance of Alaska as a country abounding in marvelous natural
resources has been recognized for the first time by this National
government and the first steps have been taken to thrust in the
master key and unlock the doors so that these resources may be
used legitimately for the benefit of the people, including those of
Seattle. And yet the leading newspapers of that cityT and one
of its representatives in Corgress miss no opportunity to mis
represent and pillory the administration that is attempting to
bring grist to the Seattle mill by striking the shackles that have
hitherto bound Alaska. It is surely like biting the hand that
would feed it. But to what base uses may the pursuit of bittetr
political partisanism come!
